tv Right This Minute FOX July 18, 2012 9:00am-9:30am PDT
i'm beth troutman. we've got great videos, "right this minute." you are watching a man who possibly saved his own life. hear the story behind the bold escape. >> this is terrifying. a protester is bringing sexy back rocking. >> the borat bong. >> but see why he did not dress to impress the cops. >> what? >> you exposed yourself, i saw you. >> a man is covered in slumg and
scum. >> he's my new hero. >> you'll know why when he see what he found. and why scooters and escalators don't mix. >> come on, lady, are you kidding me? this us on wpxi on a street in sheridan, pennsylvania. >> whoa. >> immediately this person gets up and started running toward some cops that were on an unrelated case. >> it looks like the cops and all these people standing there didn't even notice. >> they probably had no idea where he came from. >> according to reports, this man had been kidnapped and took this opportunity in front of the cops to save his own life, escaping from the van that he was being held at gunpoint. >> my goodness. >> what? >> he reportedly told police that he had been watching down the street. men inside the van asked him for directions. when he couldn't provide
directions, two armed men from within the van, snatched him, pulled him inside to rob him. >> this feels a little strange. you don't hear of many stories where innocent adults are kidnapped. >> the guy definitely took some serious risk jumping out of a moving vehicle. >> he reportedly told police that he heard the men saying where can we take him to kill him. we need to kill him. >> and what luck to be cruising by a scene with a bunch of cops at it. >> it's amazing that nobody was firing at him as he was trying to jump from the vehicle. >> maybe they saw the police and were spooked by the police and thought now we can't do anything. >> you do see a police officer jump in his car and drive after the van. the van was located a short time later. police have identified one suspect, david walker. they are still looking for the other two men that were in the van. >> this is terrifying. i've got some dash cam footage from a sheriff's deputy
patrol car in pontiac, michigan. the patrol car was in the downtown area of pontiac and saw this driver cross the yellow line, run a red light, go the wrong way down a one-way street. when the officer tried to pull this guy over, he fled. but watch what happened. >> oh, boy. right into a house. >> right into a building, knocks over a stop sign. keeps trying to run but another patrol car gets in his way. >> come on. >> and he rams that patrol car. all of the sheriff deputies get out of the car with their guns drawn, head over to get this guy out of this suv. but here's what happened. officers ended up having to tase this guy because he was resisting arrest. they ended up arresting him, taking him into custody and charged him with several offenses, including eluding police and resisting arrest. according to the sheriff's office, this guy as intoxicated.
>> no! i can't believe that. >> that's surprising. somebody intoxicated getting into that kind of trouble. >> he was just trying to rack up his points. in his mind he was playing a video game. >> the good news in this case is the bad guy was caught, but not by the long arm of the law. check this out. this happened in boynton beach, florida. we got this video from wp tv. this woman is giving an order at a dunkin donuts. look at this guy walk up and stand next to her. >> he grabbed her wallet. she put it down on the counter and when her hands were tied up getting her change, he snatched it. >> the employee was able to get the license plate number on the suspect's car. >> the cashier saw the man's face but they were unable to
identify him in the lineup. but the car was registered under the suspect's father's name. the suspect is michael ginger jr. and the car he was riding in belonged to his dad. they showed a picture to his dad, they showed the video and the dad was like "that's my son." he was i.d.'ed by his own father. the dad called the police and said he's going to turn himself in. >> that's my boy. let's go to the asberry park, new jersey, boardwalk where the situation starts out really funny, turns serious really quick. a little bit of a demonstration here. you've got a guy and he's wearing the borat thong underneath his shorts and pops everything off. >> you exposed yourself, i saw you. >> he's promptly arrested by an officer who's nearby. the people at this demonstration, not so happy. >> it's a bathing suit.
it may not be a flattering bathing suit but he was still covered. >> when he bent over to take his pants off, it came open, exposing his prooifivates. there's a small child in a stroller five feet from him. >> he didn't do it purposely. these people are celebrating the fact that a 1958 ordinance was recently repealed that would have made it illegal to wear your bathing suit on the boardwalk or any thing close by. this was organized as a peaceful bathing suit party where everybody is going to wear their bathing suits because now they can. so the cops are probably standing there just waiting for something, any little thing to go wrong and, boom, they jumped on. >> it thank you for protecting us from his peen sglnipenis. >> this was supposed to be funny and an exaggeration, but he ended up exposed himself to a small child. >> i think he accidentally
showed more than he wanted to and the child happened to be there. not in front of him either, he was off to the side. >> the man in the borat suit was arrested for lewdness and has a hearing on july 27th to determine whether charges will be pressed. we are hitting the mud for some -- >> downhome, good, clean, dirty fun. >> find out why this isn't your typical mud romping. >> yeehaw! >> and nick goes all pitch man on a new camping tool. >> and as a bonus it charges your electronic devices. >> see if he can sell you on the new gadget that makes roughing it less rough.
